Just got a PS5 so looking to buy Demon’s Soul Remake for the PS5.

I’ll take a Primary slot or Resell. Sorry not sure what they are called. Been out of the scene for too long. Msg me if you have one for sell. Thanks.

Just a heads up this was announced to launch with the new PS+ service coming next month

Thanks. I thought it was for the Premium. I only got the regular Plus.

For the cost of what it would take to rent a game that long, you're better off just upping your sub lol. Only way to really rent anything nowdays is if QD has it. Gamesharing is dead, nobody buys games to loan anymore unfortunately. Or if they do, they ain't here

Those PS3 days were the BEST. SO smooth and the group would just chill and talk about what games to get for that week.

Same. Past 3 or so years it's just been dead in here though, there's like zero care for anyone to sell resells or gameshare anymore. And recently some ahole wrecked the entire library of the one guy who was keeping things alive - they deserve true torture. Greed from scammers and thieves (absolute peasant scum) killed this whole great thing we had going. Pisses me off. Especially considering with PS5 now there's ways to do multiple slots again and just nobody cares or has moved on. That trust will never be there again like we used to have it, nor should it. Also gotta put some blame on Sony for doing the mass reset and killing off significant amount of PS3 accounts that seem to just be unrecoverable.

 

Anyone who is still buying digital, I don't see the point of buying it on your main account instead of on a separate one that you could resell, given the way licenses work. We should definitely have resells being sold left and right and I don't know why we don't honestly. Personally I split games with friends on our mains and that's why I don't have resells, but I can't imagine everyone is in that situation. Given how stingy most PSN sales are there is money to be made by resellers, and money to be saved by buyers. It's a win/win.

 

Such a shame though, nothing will ever come close to the level of affordability we used to have, despite it all still being doable within Sony's current system. We had a golden age and idiots ruined it. We'll never have it again. Glad to still see some faces check in here and there though

In addition to those factors, I think a big part of it is that the PlayStation landscape and CAG demographics have changed in a way that reduces demand for gamesharing.

 

I was a regular in the old thread back in about 2011-2012.  Back then, PSN had barely any decent discounts, PS+'s library was still small, and GamePass didn't exist, so digital console gaming could be pretty expensive unless you gameshared.  You can still save a lot gamesharing new releases nowadays, but once a game's been out for a few months and its price starts dropping, the incentive to jump through the GS hoops isn't there as much.  I used to browse here for random smaller/older games to try out too, but now PS+ offers hundreds of those to try out instantly, so I suppose that draw isn't as strong anymore.

 

And then the shift in demographics.  Younger generations aren't using message boards like this one much anymore, so I think it's fair to say CAG's userbase is largely 30+ now, many settled into careers, raising families, etc. and finding we have more money for games than time to play them (instead of the other way around).  Alas, once a CAG always a CAG, so we keep coming back to make sure we don't miss out on the next great deal.. :)

The PS3 era of gamesharing on this site was a time to be alive. We all are cheap asses, but back then some of us were straight up broke. Yet we never had to worry about missing out on the latest releases because this place made it extremely affordable (especially in the 5 slot days, being able to get a $60 game for as cheap as $12!) I'd take the old CAG gamesharing ways over any kind of subscription service that's available these days. I still visit this thread every few days/weeks and will continue to do so as long as it exists.

What's silly is that you can still do 3 slots. 2 activation slot (one on PS4, one on PS5) and 1 locked slot. Technically could do 2 locked spots (one for PS4 and one for PS5) but they can't play at the same time which would cause issues. Could absolutely do like a 40%/40%/20% split on a $70 game. Rentals were just easier though, and I wonder how much that played into people stop buying/reselling games. Way easier to just rent. But now even that's seemingly gone. Maybe we did this to ourselves lol. The real problem though is there aren't any trustworthy users anymore. I've just found IRL friends to split 50/50 with and share mains with at this point. Absolutely sucks to have so many trustworthy people here just move on from gaming. Even that library I ran at one point, I was SUPER careful with who I let in and we still ended up losing access to many of those accounts. Don't know if I can ever fully trust anyone after that experience.

 

At the very least, many of us got to experience so many games we wouldn't have otherwise. Cheers to that.

Wow was that Qdizzle's library? What happened if I may ask? Man seeing this thread and seeing some old folks still post got me nostalgic af. Almost made me teary eyed reading the last comments and reminiscing about those times.

Sorry I am hijacking the thread one more time, it's a long shot but does anybody knows what happened to Síocháin Zum Subete/ RogueSplinterCell? I used to keep in touch with him here some years ago but now I noticed that he is banned. This is the profile.

How's it going brother? I randomly got nostalgic and came here trying to think of ways to stir up a conversation in this thread and it looks like it's been done already. I'm not gonna lie, I miss talking to you all, wheeling and dealing back around 2013 when I first came here was awesome! I've been trying to slow my role lately and stop posting at Mach speed while simultaneously making a fool of myself (gets easier with age) haha. Albani, I'm that Rogue guy if you didn't catch on. We can talk about stuff more in PM's if you are up for it - a lot has happened since we last spoke.

 

Glad to see that you guys still share the same idea or feeling about this place. I hardly check this site anymore, but I'm still happy it's around. And one last thing: You guys rock.

I honestly don’t buy a lot of games on here anymore either, a big reason for that is I don’t have opportunity to try things I would have bought a share of previously to test out. I pretty much buy a card every so often and redeem it into my account where it usually stays and collects dust until something I want comes out. Probably complicates things too, that I now have all 3 consoles lol

So awesome to see people still in this thread. I myself stepped away for MANY years from this site and oddly enough got pulled back in wondering whatever happened to the sharing thread :). With new games like COD, God Of War, and callisto Protocol I wouldn't be surprised if we see a lot more activity in here :)

Some idiot he rented to did something stupid and a lot of his accounts got the axe from Sony. He went dark after that. He will always be the godfather of this community IMO. Reach out and support him if you guys can. He helped keep affordable gaming alive for us when the resell situation dropped off a cliff.
